       I wrote this while listening to the Sigur Ros song "Ny Batteri" (Icelandic for "New Batteries").

    If only souls ran off of batteries
    and I could pop in a couple of new ones
    that'd make me shine like a lighthouse
    instead of a sad, dim booklight
    bringing on my spring-like rebirth.

      Another one of your dark-ironic, acid pieces in the fashion we all know and love. As usual, I enjoyed the imagery very much as well as the 'stretched' emotions.
    The last line somehow doesn't fit the rest though...might be the 'and' that bothers me alittle but that's all really.

      boy, the image of a sad dim booklight is great. really great. booklights are so dim, so melancholy, and sometimes they flicker (but such a dim, subtle flicker that moves between drab and "drabier").

    good one!

      I love the tone of this. How you want to shine like a lighthouse, not like a lightbulb or some other bright object. The end tied it together with being born again like springtime. Great job.

      very original, a great thought but unfortunately it doesn't work. if it would I would change my batteries immediately.
    I like the last line but I would change the "and" to "I'd". cause with "and" your sentence feels somehow incomplete, at least for me. anyway a really good poem.

      I sure do wish souls were like batteries, because I would of popped in some new ones long time ago. I like this piece...short, sweet, and to the point.
